NFT: Yanks news - Didi Gregorius

B in ALB : 3/20/2017 12:06 pm
apparently he has a right shoulder injury and is flying to Tampa for some tests. He had a preliminary MRI. Something about a hematoma of the subcapsular muscle according to Joe Girardi.
Here comes the Gleyber talk.

Not good.  
Del Shofner : 3/20/2017 12:08 pm : link
I'm not a fan of the WBC happening at this time of year, although I don't know anything about what caused Didi's injury ... just seems like it's waiting to happen, with players having to ramp it right up without spring training. I have the same worries about Dellin.

Hopefully this is not major with Didi. I suppose a silver lining is that we have a bunch of young SS's to fill in.
Hope not serious  
mfsd : 3/20/2017 12:09 pm : link
He was raking in the WBC
Torres is only 20  
Greg from LI : 3/20/2017 12:12 pm : link
Nothing's impossible, but unless he absolutely destroys the minors I don't think we'll see him this season. He's never played a game over High A yet. I know some people will throw Cano's name out there, but he had split his last full year in the minors (at 21) in AA/AAA, and had played a couple of months in AAA at 22 before being called up.

If Gregorius misses time, I'll bet Torreyes fills in.
We are fortunate  
mavric : 3/20/2017 12:14 pm : link
to have a bevy of good prospects at SS, but I really prefer the steady defense and solid bat in Didi. Hope it's nothing serious
Oh I agree.  
bceagle05 : 3/20/2017 12:15 pm : link
I just think people are clamoring for Gleyber and that's what all the buzz will be if this is something serious. I trust Cashman to be patient. Obviously it's best for the franchise if Didi is fine and in the opening day lineup.
WAY more likely to fill in with Torreyes than Torres.

we have some good young SS prospects  
Greg from LI : 3/20/2017 12:16 pm : link
But none of them are knocking on the door yet. Wade was the closest and they're trying to make him into a Ben Zobrist-type utilityman (no, I'm not saying he'll hit like Zobrist). Torreyes probably gets first crack, or maybe Ruben Tejada.

What is your theory on how WBC timing could cause such an injury? How much stretching does an MLB SS need before he can really rocket a ball? A full month?

Not sure I have a "theory" and it may have nothing to do with it. Or it might. Just seems like going off to Korea to play serious games in the first week of March could have guys going full out before they're completely ready. But this is more superstition than medicine on my part ... just hate to see it happen.
Didi DHed for much of the tourney...  
Dunedin81 : 3/20/2017 12:35 pm : link
I don't much like the WBC either, but I can't blame that on the tournament.
Ok so maybe it's just bad luck  
Tony in Tampa : 3/20/2017 1:33 pm : link
But this is the second time I can recall a significant injury coming out of the WBC for one of the Yanks players. Tex was never the same player after his wrist was injured. Sorry but the WBC still appears as a forced event for me. MLB wants it, but the teams hate. International fan love it, US fans, meh.

Also based on the ESPN article; Cashman has already declare Didi will not be replaced by Torres

draft tomorrow in a realllllly deep league. How has Chad Green looked this spring? He had phenomenal AAA numbers last year but struggled a bit when he came up. Has he looks impressive at all this spring?
Green has mostly pitched well  
Greg from LI : 3/20/2017 2:14 pm : link
Although he had an outing against the Phillies where his line was OK but had a bunch of loud outs. He was being hit pretty hard even the damage wasn't much.

Plus he is not on the active roster: I doubt the team wants to move him to the active roster until it has to. Still Torres has had a great spring.
Didi Pipp :-)  
Victor in CT : 3/20/2017 2:46 pm : link
can't rush these kids for this year though. I do not like using MLBers and high minors guys in the WBC. It should be for low minors and college prospects.
Looks like this might get Refsnyder on the team this year.  
shelovesnycsports : 3/20/2017 3:22 pm : link
Shift Castro to SS and play Refs at 2nd so you don't lose a power bat. bring in torreyz late in games for defense.
Fuck the WBC

I remember a story Joe Torre told about Cano. Cano looked great in spring training the year he was called up (2005) and someone who saw Robby asked Joe, "Why on Earth they signed Tony Womack if they had this kid?" And Joe responded, "I have no idea." I agree that Torres probably should wet his feet in Trenton before being called up, but we shouldn't discount the possibility that he's simply ready to be a major leaguer right now.

Torres doubled in a pair of runs 20 minutes before I typed this. That's his 6th double of the spring.

Torres the Hitter is Ready.
Torres the Fielder needs some work.
He has never played higher than A ball. Don't rush this gem. Hell they want to get him time at 3rd too.
Depending on how bad, there are  
section125 : 3/20/2017 4:22 pm : link
Tejada, Wade and Torreyes. Sounds like a bad deep bruise. Agree that Torres naver having been above A, is not likely even if he looks ready.

Likely opt for Tejada or Torreyes. I'd like to see Wade.
Yeah, Torres the hitter is unreal.  
bceagle05 : 3/20/2017 4:23 pm : link
Looks like a veteran up there, the way he works counts and hits to all fields. I think it's a no-brainer to start him in AA, but he's gonna make a big push this season for at least a September call-up. Hopefully Frazier forces the Yankees' hand even sooner.
Fraizer can wait a year.  
shelovesnycsports : 3/20/2017 4:28 pm : link
but the Mckinney kid is unreal. He could be a diamond in the rough.
I was going to keep Didi for fantasy baseball  
Matt M. : 3/20/2017 8:07 pm : link
Now, I'm not sure.
I agree with Tony in Tampa  
Matt M. : 3/20/2017 8:09 pm : link
The WBC is a forced event, in terms of MLB. The teams re not fond of sending players, especially so early in Spring Training. The US fans are not so fanatic about this tournament. I hope the international and TV dollars are worth it.
good thing we have Torreyes and Tejada
